BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) - Four Palestinians were reportedly shot and injured with live bullets, while several others suffered from severe tear gas inhalation on Tuesday during clashes with Israeli forces in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency reported that clashes erupted in the town of Sair and the al-Arroub refugee camp, to the north of Hebron.

In al-Arroub, Israeli forces reportedly raided the camp, sparking clashes with locals.

According to Wafa, Forces fired live ammunition at residents, injuring three in the feet. They were transferred to hospital for medical treatment. Their conditions remained unknown.

“Forces further attacked residents' homes with tear gas canisters, causing many to suffocate as a result of tear gas inhalation,” Wafa said.

In the town of Sair, a fourth Palestinian was also shot and injured with live ammunition during clashes.

Israeli forces reportedly prevented ambulance crews from providing the injured youth with first aid and from transferring him to a hospital. His condition remained unknown.

During the raid on Sair, five Palestinians were detained by Israeli forces.
